Plano's new Soft Crate turns the ubiquitous milk crate, common as a catch-all for kayak anglers, into a versatile tackle system. The 12-by-12½-by-17½-inch Plano is made from water-resistant fabric; its side storage panels fold up to form a carry handle. The four-panel design fits inside a 13-by-13-inch milk crate or rests directly on the deck. The Plano's interior comes with multiple compartments accepting up to nine 3700-size utility boxes. The lid offers additional storage and a zippered pocket. The gray-and-red exterior sports D-rings, tool holders and MOLLE webbing. The Soft Crate costs $49.99.
